Six restaurants in Strasbourg – and earlier this year in Paris – threw open their kitchens to refugee chefs in the run-up to Christmas, allowing them to serve the dishes of their homeland and bring together different cultures through food.

The Refugee Food Festival was the initiative of Food Sweet Food, an organization that specializes in forming connections between people through culinary events, books and documentaries, and the UN Refugee Agency UNHCR.

The goal was to change the way refugees are perceived, while allowing residents enjoying Strasbourg’s seasonal festivities to taste new flavours and discover other cuisines.
